Santa Cruz artist Gene Flores designed a sculpture for Salz Tannery that was both beautiful and functional. Salz Tannery required a cooling tower for a particular piece of equipment. Norman Lezin decided that one of Gene Flores' fountain sculptures would achieve the same objective. It was forged from pie-shaped plates of white bronze, which were poured in sand and then bent with a large brake. Gene Flores worked out of his home on Redwood Drive off of Branciforte Drive. He created a significant work of art for $5,000.
